I received my BS in biochemistry and BA in chemical biology from Brandeis University in the laboratory of Christopher Miller, PhD in 2016. In the following three years, I worked as a technical research assistant in the laboratory of Howard Weiner, MD at the Ann Romney Center for Neurologic Diseases (ARCND) at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston. There, I contributed to a project determining the transcriptional gene signature of various Th17 cell subsets implicated in autoimmune disorders such as multiple sclerosis (MS). In 2019, I started my graduate studies in Yale's Immunobiology PhD program and subsequently joined the O'Connor Lab in May 2020. I am interested in studying myasthenia gravis (MG) as a model to further understand B cells and the antibodies they produce in the context of autoimmune pathogenesis. I plan to learn and apply B cell sequencing technologies and computational analyses on obtained clinical samples in order to answer outstanding questions in the field. Outside of the lab, I enjoy hiking, fitness, photography, filming weddings, and attending live music events.
